Mine is sitting in my closet right now. Ambient air is about 65F, so fermentation is probably hovering around 70F. My whole closet smells awesome!

What yeast do you usually use for this? I have 5lbs of honey left over from my last batch of mead and 5 gallons of apple juice. Can I sun apple cider for apple juice?

I use Champagne Yeast but I am sure that you can use whatever you fancy as long as it can attenuate well.

You can use Apple Cider or Apple Juice. Difference between the two is that one is filtered and the other isn't. Again to each their own. What makes it in my opinion is the spicing. I am sure that different honey can also be used, which would make for interesting research. Orange Blossum, Starflower, Clover etc...
